Yesterday, Kaya had gymnastics in the afternoon, thanks to Grandma for helping with the tuition for this session. On the way out of the driveway, I stopped to grab the mail and instead of a big, fat wad of bills I found a big, fat wad of coupons! Perfect timing as we were hoping to stop at the grocery store to pick up a few staples. Earlier last week, in an effort to stretch our food budget for the month, I went to over three dozen different websites and left comments and our address.
So far, we have received envelopes with coupons from the following companies: Amy's kitchen (lots of great coupons and FREE items), Lundberg, Odwalla ($1 off and a FREE item), Ecover, Method Home cleaners, Earth Friendly Products, Stonyfield, Quorn, Robert's American, Clif and Luna bars (FREE coupons) and Tofurkey. I also printed off a few coupons I found online for Tribe Hummus, 8th Continent soymilk, and Honey Bunches of O's cereal (which is for Jay's late night sweet tooth attack).
At the store, our original total was to be $55.00 and I had over $22.00 in coupon savings , so I got everything for $30 and some change. I didn't even use all of the free coupons I had because I was unsure if the store would redeem them and didn't want a big hassle at the check out. Now that I know they *do* redeem freebies, I will score big next time we go to the store as well.
